I don't crave sweets most days, however it seems after dinner, later in the
evenings, that is when I want just a bit of sweets. I try to always eat fruit but
sometimes, I give in and eat a couple of small cookies, or a mini size
mint patty. I have struggled a bit last week, because of the two birthdays
in my family.

I plan to do better in the days ahead.

"I lift up my eyes to the hills-where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and Earth."
Psalm 121: 1-2 (NIV)

Starting week 2 challenge today. Emotions trigger my sweet tooth so this week I need to work on maintaining a positive attitude and try not to let little things get to me. Once I become too tired or depressed the sugar monster raises its ugly head in the form of anything chocolate. So I need to safe guard against fatigue, depression and negative self talk.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Vanilla stevia? I have never seen it I will look for it. I tried the almond and did not care for it, but I do the lactose fat free all the time.

The other night, I made a hot chocolate with almond milk, cocoa powder, and a few drops of vanilla stevia. It hit the spot for a "treat" and was about 50 cals.

I plan to avoid these triggers: I will not eat more than one chocolate a day. I will cut down on Splenda. I will drink only one glass of lemonade a day.

Way to go! What I do is have Stevia in the house and that really helps I do not need anything in my coffee but that (I only drink coffee a few times a month). I sweeten with it and I keep the dark chocolate 70% or more and that really helps. I will also make a smoothie alot of nights. I use ice, frozen non sweetened fruit (or fresh) and then lactose free skim milk (sometimes a spoonful of slow churned ice cream and/or sugarfree caramel) and then blend in blender.

Way to go! I also have that stash of squares, and it's a great way to satisfy yourself with some control. Another thing to think about is, are you craving something sweet, or are you craving a "treat"? Sometimes we just want to comfort ourselves or have a nice finish to the day, and we're used to thinking of sweets as that reward. What about a cup of decaf with some full half and half? The 40 cals from the half/half is better than all the sugars of a sweet treat!

I've been without my biggest trigger - soda - for almost two weeks now. It's been a lot easier than I thought it would be.

However, I'm still struggling with my need for something sweet - cakes, cookies and especially chocolate.

I've tried to avoid these triggers by keeping sweets out of the house. I do, however, keep what I call my emergency stash of chocolate squares. When I get a craving, first I try to give it some time - see if I can wait it out. If I can't, I try some fruit first, and a lot of time that solves it. If I've waited, and it still hasn't gone away, I do reach for one of my chocolate squares. They're individually wrapped, and it's dark chocolate, so it's a little better for me.

It has improved - it used to be that I could sit down and eat a whole bag of these chocolate squares, and now it's been two weeks and the majority of the bag is still there.

They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.
-Andy Warhol
